"Rudy Odom has decided to just be a full-time student," Tuberville said. "He'll finish up the year and decide what his future is going to be."
Odom gets instruction from Coach Terry Price during two-a-day practices last fall.
A talented player coming out of Fontainebleau High in Mandeville, La. last year, the 6-5, 260 Odom came in with high expectations and showed some promise last season as a redshirt. Heading into this spring he was expected to move to the offensive line provided he could get big enough to make the move.
As a senior Odom was one of the top players in Louisiana as he finished with 93 tackles, 11 sacks and six caused fumbles. Still young at not even 19-years old, Odum is expected to transfer to a school closer to home following the spring semester to continue his education. It is not known if he will continue his football career.
